Fujifilm’s X100 series of cameras are compact and perfect for everyday use. The fourth iteration, X100F, was released back in January 2017. It’s been a while, but according to the latest reports, we’ll see the new version next year.
This will be an interesting move for Nikon if it turns out to be true, but the word is that the Nikon D6 is going to have in-body image stabilisation. Nikon Rumors first reported on this potential future feature back in April, but now they say that they’ve received a few more specs and interesting bits of information.
A post has popped up on Nikon Rumors suggesting that Nikon is killing off some of their most popular DSLR lines. Specifically, the D3x00 and D5x00 series along with their “Pro” line of DX bodies, currently the Nikon D500. They say that they will “most likely” be replaced by mirrorless models.
It’s a bit of a bummer, although not entirely unexpected, really, and this transition seems mostly limited to their crop DSLRs at the moment. What does surprise me, though, is that they’re not killing off the D7x00 product line.
In a dwindling compact camera market, the Canon G7X Mark II has proven to remain very popular – particularly amongst vloggers. It’s a fantastic little camera for what it is and has received many great reviews since its release in 2016. But many people all had the same complaint. It only shoots 1080p.
The G7X line’s major competitor is Sony’s RX100 series, and those have shot 4K ever since the Sony RX100 IV was released back in 2015. But now Canon looks to finally be catching up after Nokishita leaks specs and photos for the soon-to-be-officially-announced Canon G7X Mark III. It shoots 4K, and even has an external microphone socket!
There has been a rumor going around that Ricoh will stop using Pentax brand name because it will lose the right to it. However, Ricoh has denied the rumor, saying that it will continue to use the Pentax brand when it comes to the camera business.
Last month, Canon Rumors reported that a 32-megapixel APS-C sensor was on the way from Canon. Now it looks like that information has been confirmed, according to a Taiwan certification agency.
The document seems to be mostly in Chinese, according to Google Translate, and mostly seems to relate to a new wireless module. But it mentions that it’s destined for a new Canon sensor. DC126801 appears to be a new 32.5-megapixel sensor that could be set to go into either a 7D Mark III or 90D DSLR.
The Fujifilm 33mm f/1 AF lens isn’t exactly a secret. It was first mentioned back in July last year when Fujifilm released their latest lens roadmap for X series cameras. While not originally scheduled for release until 2020, the lens was made official a couple of months later in September.
We knew the focal length, the maximum aperture, and what mount it was for. We even had a rough idea of the release schedule, but what we didn’t know about was the price. Now, it seems that Czech retailer, Oehling, has put up a price. A price that equates to a little under $3,100.
Tamron are getting ready to announce a new 17-28mm f/2.8 Di III RXD lens for Sony FE, according to a post on Sony Alpha Rumors. While not quite as wide or as long, it should offer Sony shooters a less expensive alternative to the Sony 16-35mm f/2.8 GM lens for a short focal length zoom with a fast aperture.
Published by Nokishita, the images show a body that seems significantly smaller than the existing Canon EOS R, suggesting that it won’t be the super high-resolution pro body that many have been expecting. The specs, too, also seems to suggest that this is the lower end model that was rumoured back in November.
